MANZINI – Newly-appointed Acting Prime Minister (PM) Vincent Mhlanga, who was late by an hour explained he was delayed by an accident which had occurred along the MR3 Public Road at Nazarene yesterday afternoon.

The acting PM was the guest speaker during the official closing ceremony of the 50th edition of the Eswatini International Trade Fair held at the Mavuso Trade and Exhibition Centre yesterday.
The event, which was scheduled to begin at 2:30pm, started an hour late after exhibitors, businesspeople and members of the public had patiently waited.
When the Ministry of Commerce Principal Secretary, Siboniso Nkambule, explained that Mhlanga was still on his way and held up where the accident had occurred, people expressed their disappointment and made it clear they were running out of patience.

However, when Mhlanga eventually arrived, an hour later, he apologised and insisted it was not his habit not to keep time.
The acting PM informed the crowd that His Majesty had reminded the nation to work hard towards achieving Vision 2022.
“We are in the 50th edition of the Eswatini International Trade Fair, hence you might have noted that the theme for this year was about celebrating 50 years of connecting traders. As government, we would like to laud the participation of the private and public sector entities in this year’s trade fair.”


“Even though the growth of our economy has been subdued owing to resultant effect of relatively subdued global and regional economic growth, the private sector still has a major role to play to catalyse growth as the engine of our economy,” Mhlanga said.
